Family Behavior Therapy
Modifying Attitudes and Behaviors
Family Behavior Therapy (FBT), which has demonstrated positive results in both adults and adolescents, is aimed at addressing not only substance use problems but other co-occurring problems as well, such as conduct disorders, child mistreatment, depression, family conflict, and unemployment. FBT combines behavioral contracting with contingency management.
FBT involves the client along with at least one significant other such as a cohabiting partner or a parent (in the case of adolescents involvement ). Counselors seek to engage families in applying the behavioral strategies taught in sessions and in acquiring new skills to improve the home environment. Clients are encouraged to develop behavioral goals for preventing substance use, which are anchored to a contingency management system. Clients’ family and parents are prompted to set goals related to effective parenting behaviors. During each session, the behavioral goals are reviewed, with rewards provided by significant others when goals are accomplished. This technique of behavioral therapy, can increase an individual’s opportunity at long-term recovery.
